Munidata

munidata is an API for accessing multiple instances of Unicode data.

The current version of munidata is a simple abstraction layer on top of the picu module.

Acknowledgment

This toolset was implemented by Viagenie (Audric Schiltknecht, David Drouin and Marc Blanchet) and Wil Tan on an ICANN contract.

Pre-requisites

  • Python (2.7, or >= 3.4)
  • picu [MIT/X License]

Setup

If your distribution does not package the required dependencies, the easiest way to get a working environment in no-time is to use Python's virtual environments.

  • Install virtualenv

  • Create a python virtualenv:

      $ virtualenv venv
    
  • Activate the environment:

      $ source ./venv/bin/activate
    
  • Download dependencies:

      $ (venv) pip install -r requirements.txt
    
  • Install some versions of the ICU library

Use

To get the general category of a codepoint for multiple ICU versions:

$ python test_munidata.py --libs /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/52.1/lib/libicuuc.dylib#/usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/52.1/lib/libicui18n.52.1.dylib#52 --libs /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/4.4.1/lib/libicuuc.dylib#/usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/4.4.1/lib/libicui18n.dylib#44 19DA gc
Unicode version: %s 6.3.0.0
U+19DA (NEW TAI LUE THAM DIGIT ONE)
Other_Number
Unicode version: %s 5.2.0.0
U+19DA (NEW TAI LUE THAM DIGIT ONE)
Decimal_Number

Same thing with just plain picu:

$ python picu_multi.py --libs /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/52.1/lib/libicuuc.dylib#/usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/52.1/lib/libicui18n.52.1.dylib#52 --libs /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/4.4.1/lib/libicuuc.dylib#/usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/4.4.1/lib/libicui18n.dylib#44 19DA gc
INFO:picu_multi:Library '/usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/52.1/lib/libicuuc.dylib' loaded. Unicode version: 6.3.0.0
INFO:picu_multi:Library '/usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/4.4.1/lib/libicuuc.dylib' loaded. Unicode version: 5.2.0.0
